Time for my long overdue updates again. What’s new? Let’s start chronologically.
I’m Married 👰🏻♀️💒🤵🏻♂️
In December, Ermir and I tied the knot. 💍 We both felt 2022 was a good year (and we both liked that it was divisible by two), so as the year was nearing its end, we felt it was important to rush and catch our wedding appointment sooner than later.
We went for a simple, close family-only ceremony at the municipality building, followed by a nice lunch. My dress – and overall look – were kept quite simple; but if I may say so myself, I quite liked the look!

I feel a lot better – and am catching a Travel Bug ✈️🐞
As I said, first trimester kicked my butt. Now that that’s out of the way, however, I am feeling a lot better. My mom and I just got back from a very fun weekend in Berlin. Since this is our nth time there, we didn’t do much – we had a lovely vegan Thai dinner with Jonida, who has graciously been keeping my master’s diploma safe all this time, and spend the rest of the trip walking, shopping and eating. What more can
two three (😉👧🏻) girls want from a weekend trip?
